Item Description: Vintage Royal Albert Old Country Roses Bone China Dinner and Tea Set with 22k gold trim. Now considered the most popular china pattern in the world, Old Country Roses came into being in 1962 when the post World War II pottery industry was struggling. By it's instant popularity, it provided a needed boost to Royal Albert, a pottery owned and operated by Thomas C. Wild and Sons, Ltd. who had operated it since 1896. The design was a result of years of work by Harold Holdcroft who said; We decided to incorporate all the ingredients we knew would be acceptable, richness of color, softness of color, good quality and a good value look. All these qualities are incorporated in the pattern. It has lush deep red roses, warmth from the tea roses, delicacy from the bluish pink and an overall softening off of the pattern by using a shade of soft warm green. The rich gold stipple trim gives the sprays continuity and the china good value for money. Enhanced by the elegant traditional Royal Albert Montrose shape and the attractive scalloped edges finished in 22k gold, from the twist and curl of the teacup handles to the fluted trim on the teapot lid....the attention to detail has contributed to a superb original design. Please note that each piece of this set is back-stamped with 'Old Country Roses, Royal Albert, Bone China, England' which is the original first back stamp used in 1962.
